A Culinary Journey in Val d’Isère

Food & Drink

From its lofty perch in the French Alps, Airelles Val d’Isère has some irresistible culinary surprises up its sleeve. A world of flavour awaits discerning diners, with inspirations that reach far beyond the delicious heartwarming fare of the Savoie region 

To dine under the auspices of legendary Chef Nobu is to understand the world-wide love affair with his delicate, inspired blend of Japanese and Peruvian flavours. At Matsuhisa, cosily intimate interiors cultivate a zen-like atmosphere in which to enjoy signature dishes like Black Cod Miso, Yellowtail Jalapeño or the White Fish Dry Miso. 

From its cosy chalet interiors to its fabulous panoramic terrace, Loulou is the perfect place to meet up with friends and family after – or during – a day on the slopes. Taste a little of la dolce vita with Loulou’s Mediterranean menu, where favourites include the black-truffle pizza, lobster linguine and heartwarming roast chicken with morel mushrooms.  

After hours, Le Piaf is the only address you need to discover the vibrant Val d’Isère nightlife. Sultry candlelit dining and a luxurious menu marks the perfect beginning to an evening defined by live music, DJ sets and a fun-loving crowd.

To perfect this culinary trip back in time,,the restaurant opens it doors, proposing dinner as once served to kings: a “Regal Feast, but also an unforgettable experience“. Arriving in successive waves, the dishes, in tableware from the Chef’s private collection and served by a team dressed in period costume, recall royal feasts. “Oille” soup, Egg with Caviar, Blue Lobster Aspic, Stuffed Sole and Beef in Sauce will captivate your tastebuds.

Ode to summer gastronomy

Food & Drink

Gourmets are spoilt at La Bastide. With three on-site restaurants, and two more on the Place du Château including the new Ladurée tea-room and boutique, the hotel is an essential gastronomic address in the region. Provençal, Italian, Asian…, flavours from here and elsewhere are on the programme.

From Clover Gordes to L'Orangerie via LE TIGrr and La Bastide de Pierres, La Bastide offers an array of culinary offerings unlike any other in Provence

To savour cuisine with the accent on treats from Provence, head for Clover Gordes, the restaurant of well-known Chef Jean-François Piège. Refined, generous and convivial, his suggestions feature Sisteron lamb marinated in savory. L’Orangerie, the historic restaurant at La Bastide with Chef Yohan Fatela at the helm, is also deeply rooted in the region. Its menu brims with authentic local dishes such as baked turbot with Jerusalem artichokes or crisp grilled veal with roast Doubeurre squash. In both cases, the scenery is stunning from their terraces, offering fabulous views of the Luberon valley.

Festive atmosphere at LE TIGrr Gordes

LE TIGrr also wants you to growl with pleasure… Renowned for its festive ambiance, it offers a special experience in the evening. After watching the sun go down while sipping a signature cocktail at the bar, take your seat in the dining-room or on the terrace. Giving priority to Thai, Vietnamese and Japanese specialities, the menu contains surprises with re-tweaked dishes such as Thai “bouillabaisse” or sea bream wrapped in banana leaves. Unique!

“When Asia meets the Provencal countryside, the result is an exquisite mix of flavours in the form of LE TIGrr.”

La Bastide de Pierres, a charming trattoria that serves a range of Italian dishes

Finally, when visiting the village of Gordes, don’t miss the charming Italian trattoria La Bastide de Pierres for a lunch revolving around delicious “bruschettas”, pizzas or pasta, and the brand new Ladurée tea-room proposing the region’s most elegant tea-time!

Petit Loulou Carte 2

LOULOU, casual elegance

Food & Drink

Following the success of Loulou at the Museum of Decorative Arts in Paris and on the beach at Ramatuelle, this talented brother-and-sister duo have opened the restaurant Loulou in the mountains, at Airelles Val d’Isère.

They are Monsieur Bleu, Girafe, Perruche, Le Petrus. They are also Loulou. They have the knack of opening their restaurants in the finest places belonging to our historic and natural heritage. And of transforming these legendary addresses into institutions. Together, they came up with Loulou, a creative personality fond of travel, with a logo and menu designed by genius Jean-Charles de Castelbajac. “More than just a restaurant, Loulou is above all a modern vision of classic elegance representing a generous, hedonistic lifestyle,” says Gilles Malafosse.

Petit Loulou Portraits Benoit Dargere Gilles et Claire Malafosse 2

At Loulou, service is sophisticated, but with a touch of folly! “Loulou welcomes guests to its chalet in the mountains; it is elegant, delightful and lots of fun,” says Claire Malafosse with a smile. This former criminal lawyer joined the Loulou adventure and became its artistic director. She and her brother imagined a terrace with a dazzling view, “a family chalet atmosphere, somewhere between the Rocky Mountains and the Dolomites”.

“A modern vision at the service of classic elegance.”

Inside Airelles

A place to relax after skiing amidst natural decor comprised of custom-made larchwood furnishings, arts-and-crafts, warm traditonal fabrics, like a fantasy of mountain life. They had long dreamed of opening Loulou in Val d’Isère, having spent many holidays there in their childhood. The resort perfectly embodies Loulou’s values: family, friends, casualness, a taste for beauty and the good things in life.

The menu signed Benoit Dargère gives precedence to the Italy of the mountains with iconic dishes from the regions of Piedmont and Lombardy. Music is entrusted to guest DJs who add its beat to the view of the snow front. The aim is crystal clear: enjoy, savour, laugh, dream, love. Life is a ball at Loulou’s.

Piero 2

The pinnacle of enticing treats in courchevel

Food & Drink

The restaurants of Les Airelles are among the most sought-after in Courchevel. This season again, they are evolving to surprise their guests!

Dining proposals consist of three restaurants and give precedence to organic produce. The half board package also gives guests access to Courchevel’s most famous addresses on the slopes: Le Chalet de Pierres, the Asian restaurant at the Aman Le Mélézin hotel, and Folie Douce in Méribel.

With Piero, the culinary artist of the Maisons Airelles, Marco Garfagnini is taking up his winter quarters in Courchevel after a fabulous season in Saint-Tropez. Born in the Tuscan village of Carrara, he borrows inspiration from his origins to present a menu that embodies Italian generosity, at the very heart of the French Alps. After training in Paris, London and New York, and working as Executive-Chef at prestigious addresses such as the Four Seasons George V in Paris and the Burj Al Arab in Dubai, Chef Marco Garfagnini has recreated dining at Piero at Les Airelles by adding touches of charm and sophistication.

In fine weather, tables are laid on the terrace of Les Airelles with a view of the Alpine Garden to appreciate the beauty of Courchevel.

“The promise of an ode to italian gastronomy, the tone of les agapes is set at Piero.”

Inside Airelles

This winter, Les Airelles welcomes a culinary novelty. Created exclusively for Airelles guests, La Cave des Grands Crus, just a couple of steps from the Palace hotel, is the new gastronomic place to go this winter. You’ll taste the very best wines in a warm, intimate atmosphere. The private chef and master sommelier will skilfully match wine and food for you – a unique culinary experience.

Finally, Le Coin Savoyard, inspired by the region’s best “carnotzets”, offers its guests the most tempting specialities from Savoy. Soufflé au Beaufort, Salad of Les Aravis, Farçon Savoyard and tender grills are all dishes to be relished, alongside re-tweaked fondues and raclettes.

Gordes, gourmet destination

Food & Drink

With five restaurants and two bars, there is something for every palate and every occasion. Your taste buds will take great pleasure in spending time in a region that is renowned for its delectable ingredients. Beyond the great classics of Mediterranean cuisine, La Bastide has a number of culinary inspirations that will satisfy food-lovers over the course of the days and the starry nights.

Provençal cuisine at L’Orangerie and La Citadelle

At lunchtime, the classics of L’Orangerie are best enjoyed under the hot sun: stuffed Provencal vegetables, grilled filet of Saint-Pierre, purple artichokes in olive oil… Immerse yourself in the gourmet side of Provence, with the best of local products, enjoyed on the terrace in the shade of the mulberry trees, or in the winter garden. At L’Orangerie, the fabulous buffet takes over the two terraces every Sunday for the legendary Sunday brunch.

When the sun turns the entire valley a fiery orange in late evening, it is time to walk over to La Citadelle for a sophisticated dinner under the moonlight, with the best of Mediterranean gastronomy on offer. The dishes are as beautiful as they are delicious, showing off a range of flavours and textures, inspired by the wonderful products of Provence.

It has a warm decor made up of antique furniture and old crockery, and a dreamy terrace, looking out towards the green hills and the distant horizon. The ideal location for his first countryside venture, thanks to the superlative landscapes of La Bastide, here the menu puts nature in the spotlight, with food divided between Greenery and Fire. The mix of products from the Provencal terroir and masterful cooking is truly sublime.

“Immerse yourself in the gourmet side of Provence, with the best of local products, enjoyed in the shade of the mulberry trees.”

Inside Airelles

An atmosphere of fun at LE TIGrr Gordes

Both a restaurant and a bar, LE TIGrr brings Provencal evenings to life, with a festive atmosphere that evolves from the aperitif at the start of the evening until midnight strikes. For a cocktail or a glass of champagne at sunset on the panoramic terrace, for a refined dinner with friends, or to prolong the evening with a DJ, LE TIGrr is always a good idea.

The Chef’s cuisine is refined and Thai-inspired with Vietnamese and Japanese influences. The menu includes all the great Asian classics, but Oth Sombath also revisits Mediterranean specialties with aplomb. The perfect harmony between Asian finesse and Provençal authenticity.

An italian getaway at La Bastide de Pierres

A few steps from La Bastide, on the village square opposite the extraordinary castle of Gordes, sits La Bastide de Pierres trattoria – an institution since 1820. The Provencal way of life takes on the dolce vita of Italy with specialties that will delight young and old alike: authentic Neapolitan pizza, gourmet bruschettas, Roman pasta and antipasti – or a dish of the day created by the Chef. Timeless delights designed to create pleasure, served in a retro decor straight out of a 1950s film.
